What is Natural Breast Augmentation?

If you’re looking for a new approach to breast implants, then you may have paid some attention to the billboards that are popping up advertising natural breast augmentation. When done correctly, this natural approach to breast augmentation seems like a win-win. During a natural breast augmentation procedure the fat is liposuctioned from one area of the body and inserted into the breast for a more natural look.

The Truth behind Natural Breast Augmentation

Not all doctors in the plastic surgery field are behind this procedure. The transfer of fat from one area of the body to another can come with the risk of needing multiple procedures over time, as grafted fat tends to dissolve. More concerning, when fat is transferred it can undergo necrosis, which means it will die in the graft before hardening and calcifying. During a breast exam the hardened lump can also be misdiagnosed as a cancerous growth.

It can also be hard to find information that is straight forward and objective, when it comes to  natural breast augmentation procedures. When you perform a simple internet search you’ll typically find a number of sites that are filled with positive testimonials from patients who have undergone the procedure.

This procedure is popular because it’s advertised as
a safer alternative to traditional breast augmentation procedures and without the risk of side effects.

While this surgery is now a cosmetic option, it has traditionally been used for breast reconstruction surgery
for women who have undergone mastectomies, however even in years past patients have experienced complications. The fat that is removed during liposuction no longer has a blood supply when it’s washed and
put into a syringe. In order for the fat to live it has to have small blood vessels grow into it, but until that is accomplished there’s a risk of infection because it’s considered a foreign body for a period of time. If the fat that’s been injected into the breast doesn’t grow the blood vessels, then those areas of fat will die and the patient will acquire cysts and hardened areas of scar tissue and calcification because of the fat that’s died.

The Dangers of Breast Augmentation and Liposuction

While these hardened areas are not considered dangerous, they can increase the chance that when a woman undergoes a breast cancer screening that these lumps will be mistaken for cancerous growths, which will require a biopsy. While this can be a common problem, improvements made to the screening process will make it easier for ultrasounds and MRIs to discern dead fatty growths from cancerous growths. Despite this type of complication, fat itself is not dangerous and fat is not cancer.

After the surgery you can expect such issues as itchiness, discomfort and soreness.  There are other side effects that a woman should take into consideration, especially if they’re considering liposuction. Liposuction itself presents a host of complications. Since it’s fat that’s transferred to the breast and not an implant, the fat can easily dissolve and require the patient to repeat the procedure, which in turn makes it a more costly process than traditional breast enhancement surgery.
